This is too bad. I recently read something about tailbiters possibly being a genetic anxiety-type of trait bred into a lot of halfmoons because breeders tend to throw the biters into the spawn tank since they cant show them at the time anyway. Then there is a theory that tailbiters are being bred a lot. The article said "think about it, you don't see a lot of tailbiting veiltails, do you?"
I am no expert about that so I don't know if that's really true. But it makes me want a veiltail next time because I have a halfmoon that ate almost his entire fin off.
